The California High-Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) yesterday announced it has completed construction of the Poso Creek Viaduct in Kern County, the first completed structure in the 22-mile segment of high-speed rail from the Tulare-Kern county line to Poplar Avenue in Kern County.
The more than 240-foot-long viaduct, which will allow high-speed trains to cross over Poso Creek, is the fourth high-speed rail structure completed in California’s Central Valley since August.
Construction on Poso Creek Viaduct included several environmental protections. Crews followed strict guidelines and preventive measures to protect the Poso Creek bed with silt fencing and fiber rolls, and diverted area wildlife with exclusionary fencing, CHSRA officials said in a press release.
In August and September, CHSRA complete three structures in Madera County, including grade separations.
